The Minnesota Conservation

Corps crew from Kilen

Woods, Jackson, was in

Mt. Lake recently planting

three food forests along the

south side of the lake.

For a day and a half they

planted 30 trees around

town before working on the

food forest areas. It took

another day and a half to

plant 20 crab apple trees,

raspberries and over 10 varieties

of berry-producing

shrubs which make up the

three layers of a food forest.

A natural forest has several

groups of perennials

making up its layers. The

biggest are the trees which

need full light to thrive

and grow. That is why they

grow high and wide to get

that sunlight thus forming

a canopy of leaves to soak

up the sun.
